<quoted text>And that is with many in the media still worshipping Obama. Although, that is changing.
Remarkably, Mediate has reported that, for "the first time in memory," yesterday's presidential press conference contained no questions from a television reporter. Seems press that there's an effort underway to "punish" those who aren't friendly enough toward the White House:
Perhaps coincidentally, the very same Jay Carney has been clashing with some TV reporters recently, and making unsubtle suggestions about their objectivity. A cynical person might think that the decision to skip all of the TV reporters was designed to avoid possible criticism that certain reporters were being snubbed.
Also perhaps coincidentally, the President himself has been outspoken about his displeasure with the media narrative that “both sides” are responsible for the current government shutdown and default crises.
Pretty amazing that this White House throws a snit fit about having to endure the kind of media skepticism that the GOP confronts on a routine basis, isn't it?
In the end, the hand-picked lapdog questions resulted in a media performance that was -- as Brit Hume described it to Hugh Hewitt -- "one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen. It was just pathetic."
It's worth asking: Why is the President so afraid of the tough questions?
Hey clueless nut! Off topic spammer!

You said it right, you weren't thinking at all.
You just come here to drop ridiculous charges and run off when they are challenged
Health Insurance in America grew dramatically during WWII, due to wage and price controls.
I believe 1943 was in that period. But you and the Cruzer are clueless about that, as you are about most American History. LOL
As soon as you learn how to do a basic internet search, you can educate yourself. Or did you come here to be educated??
----------
""Employer-sponsored health insurance plans dramatically expanded as a direct result of wage controls imposed by the federal government during World War II. The labor market was tight because of the increased demand for goods and decreased supply of workers during the war. Federally imposed wage and price controls prohibited manufacturers and other employers from raising wages enough to attract workers. When the War Labor Board declared that fringe benefits, such as sick leave and health insurance, did not count as wages for the purpose of wage controls, employers responded with significantly increased offers of fringe benefits, especially health care coverage, to attract workers.""
""President Harry S. Truman proposed a system of public health insurance in his November 19, 1945, address. He envisioned a national system that would be open to all Americans, but would remain optional. Participants would pay monthly fees into the plan, which would cover the cost of any and all medical expenses that arose in a time of need. The government would pay for the cost of services rendered by any doctor who chose to join the program. In addition, the insurance plan would give a cash balance to the policy holder to replace wages lost due to illness or injury. The proposal was quite popular with the public, but it was fiercely opposed by the Chamber of Commerce, the American Hospital Association, and the AMA, which denounced it as “socialism.""
----------
No, instead you will deny facts and ask others to 'prove' it to you, mostly because you know you're wrong.
Your claims of being a Democrat are just a lie, obvious to the most casual of observers. And a masters program for the destitute??
Shirley you jest.
Back to your 'I think Obama's a communist', that you ran away from like a frightened lemming. Please explain. Let's see just how ignorant you really are.
Obama is commie...and you are an idiot.

Yes, Bush was unpopular because the Democrats and their precious liberal media darlings made sure the easily fooled believed he had lied about Iraq when, in fact, it was THEY who lied for political gain.
You and the easily fooled just bought it.
Bush was also unfairly blamed for the housing market crisis when Democrats had more to do with it than Republicans.
But just wait. Obama's approval is where Bush was at during the same time in his presidency in 2005...in the 30s.
He still has 3 more years to go.
wanna explain why Bush called in those right wing radio hosts so he could try to get them back on the same page that he was on?

liberal media indeed. the conservative media were hammering him for acting like a liberal.

Look back through your OWN posts. You cited the AP post and gave the 37% Obama approval.
Maybe you were cutting and pasting so much that this slipped past you as it was not the type of thing you wanted to post-but you did.
Funny, Bush ran a very unpopular war for years, with approval ratings far below those of Obama, yet you nitwits defended him getting 4,000 American troops killed and an uncounted number of contractors.

In a war that we clearly lost, spending Trillions in the process.

But Obama goes below 50% and you asshats think he should give in to a handful of anarchists.

Not gonna happen.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.

Poll: Obama Now Viewed as Less Competent, More Dishonest Than Bush
July 02, 2013

Just 3 months ago, Bush's approval rose to 47%. Higher than Obama's - then and now.

Someone said the other day that Obama is the best gift Jimmy Carter could have gotten.

I agree. Don't think Carter's approval rose after his presidency once Reagan took office.

Not a wide margin against only Republicans.
if you had a 10% margin in your favor, you'd call it 'game over'.

Your arguments are weak, Carol.

Like how you try to downplay Obama's victory in 2012.

He won 332 Electoral Viotes to Rmoney's 206.

And that, my dear, is called a 'LANDSLIDE VICTORY'.
